Hi deeptho, you're welcome to add anything from my post to your repo if you think it is of any help.

using the wrong adapter. This can happen when using multiple cards and can depend on the order of driver loading
That occurred to me, as I had a TBS6220 T/T2 card installed originally, before physically removing it and leaving just the TBS6903., but I still have the same problem. I always check that both adapter frontends of the TBS6903 are available to the blindscan program. before using it.

using the wrong kernel version (caused by miscompiling or not properly installing)
That's what I'm looking into. My experience doing those things may be the real problem. That's why I would like other people to try your program.

Use adapter_nr option for adapter drivers (put to /etc/modprobe.d/dvb.conf):

options saa716x_core adapter_nr=0
options tbsecp3 adapter_nr=1,2

Hi Crazycat, so that fixes the adaptor order permanently even after a cold start? I'm using TBS6903 tuner 1 which will then always be adapter 0?

saa716x_core handle dvb adapters with saa7160 pci-e bridge, so 6220 init as adapter 0.
tbsecp3 handle dvb adapters with ECP3 FPGA based pci-e bridge - so adapters 1,2

OK Thanks, that's clear now.
